UFC 80: Rapid Fire Odds

UFC 80: Rapid Fire was a mixed martial arts (MMA) event held by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), that took place on January 19, 2008 at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle, England.

The main event was originally scheduled as an interim lightweight championship fight; however, then-lightweight champion Sean Sherk was stripped of his title after the California State Athletic Commission upheld his suspension for testing positive for the anabolic steroid Nandrolone.

With the lightweight championship vacated, the Penn vs. Stevenson bout was altered to be for the undisputed lightweight championship.

B.J. PENN VS JOE STEVENSON:

Round 2: It's a deep gash right in the middle of Stevenson's forehead, but the fight goes on. Stevenson comes out firing and lands an elbow, but he's still dripping blood. Penn lands a body punch, and the two fighters eachanges jabs. Penn lands a left that stuns Stevenson.

The fights turns into a boxing match, but ref Herb Dean stops the bout for a doctor's check of the cut. The fight is given the grene light, and Penn lands a combination that sends Stevenson to the mat. Penn takes the mount position and drops some more elbows. Stevenson is gushing blood that's pooling into his eyes. Stevenson tries to roll free, but Penn keeps in his hooks and works from the mount, peppering Stevenson with punches.

Stevenson gives up his back, and Penn tries to go for the rear-naked choke. Stevenson is warned about biting his opponent's hand. Penn quickly sinks in the rear-naked choke, and there's no getting out of it. Stevenson is forced to tap out.

Penn defeated Stevenson via submission (rear naked choke) at 4:02 of round 2 to become the new UFC Lightweight Champion.
